Memories of summer may be fading, the leaves on the trees may be turning and the nights may be drawing in, but that's no reason not to visit Cornwall.
Here at The Headland we think that November is one of the best times to join us - and yet this month is still undiscovered by so many, remaining a select few's 'little secret'... one we're about to let you in on!
Here are our top reasons why November is THE time to visit Cornwall...
1) The beaches are gloriously quiet.
Guess what - the days may be shorter but the sun still shines in November! Often we get those clear crisp days where a stroll along an empty beach wrapped up with a scarf and your arms entwined with someone you love are pure food for the soul.
You can walk miles exploring Newquay's multiple beaches, dip into hidden coves, and stroll along endless stretched of stunningly beautiful cliff paths.
Follow this with a hot drink by the fire, and perhaps a Sunday Roast and you've discovered it - bliss.
If you fancy this kind of break then our Muddy Boots Walking Break is probably the one for you.
2) Food. Lots of it. All delicious.
Sunday Roasts. The best thing about the winter in our opinion.
A meal that sums up what it is to be British. Tucking into cuts of your meat of choice with all your favourite veg, a glass (or two!) of wine and surrounded by family and friends.
We take our roasts very seriously here at The Headland; they're deliciously classy affairs accompanied by a live pianist with our tables making the most of our stunning floor to ceiling views of the Atlantic Ocean.
With this in mind we've created our Indulgent Sunday Stay package - an incredibly priced break which makes the most of all of the above and more. Just £99 per person.
3) There is SO much going on...
Think the summer ends and the big events finish? Wrong.
Watch Cornwall transform from an Autumnal idyll, to one filled with festive cheer and sparkling lights right before your eyes.
You never know - you may also manage to pick up a few of those special gifts from one of the local craft markets or maybe even from our very own voucher shop?
4) Storms are magnificent.
And we mean really magnificent.
When mother nature unleashes her power on the Cornish coast it truly is a sight to behold. Luckily we are one of the best places to take in this spectacle whilst tucked away safely inside. Stay warm by one of our real log fires, sip on an indulgent hot chocolate and relax in comfort.
Have you seen our Storm-Watching Breaks? They also include a special treat such as dinner in Samphire or a spa treatment.
5) November has the most incredible sunsets.
We are blessed here at The Headland to occupy a stunning position on the North coast perfect for observing nature's colourful sunsets in all their glory.
If you're lucky you'll catch one filled with reds and firey oranges - these fill our two rosette awarded Samphire Restaurant with a stunning pink hue which has to be seen to be believed.
On other nights blues give way to violets, with an enchanting glow cast across Fistral beach, ethereal beauty at its most magnificent.
Come and experience the perfect palette of sunsets on offer over three nights, we'll even make the third night free. Take a look at our 3 for 2 offer.
6) With the winter weather threatening - it's the perfect time to indulge in a little me-time...
Yes, the summer's great. But we all know when the sun shines we feel obliged to grasp hold of it while we can and enjoy the great outdoors. Sometimes however we need to take a little time to relax, to indulge ourselves and let the stresses of everyday life ebb away.
November offers the perfect opportunity to visit The Headland Spa. We offer a range of gloriously relaxing and rejuvenating treatments, plus we have our Leisure Area waiting to be discovered. Swim in our heated pool with bubble seats, recline in the sauna or Cornish salt steam room, and refresh after a dip in the hot tub with our aromatherapy showers.
If you would like to make the most of some time with us, and indulge in our spa, why not take a look at our Winter SpaScape, it includes treatments, a three course dinner in Samphire, a Festive Afternoon Tea with mulled wine and much more...
